Finding Average using VBA

Posted on 2013-06-25
Last Modified: 2013-06-25

For some reason I get an error message at the following line:

WorksheetFunction.Average(Cells(myCount, 2), Cells(myCount, 3))

below is the full code:

Sub Average()
Dim myCount As Integer, LastRow As Integer

LastRow = Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(Worksheets("Sheet2").Rows.Count, 1). _
For myCount = 2 To LastRow
With Worksheets("Sheet2")
    .Cells(myCount, 6).Value _
    WorksheetFunction.Average(Cells(myCount, 2), Cells(myCount, 3))
End With
Next myCount
End Sub

Could someone explain to me why.

Two things wrong:

1) Missing an equal sign
2) Missing a qualifying reference for your Cells calls.

Fixing both:

With Worksheets("Sheet2")
    .Cells(myCount, 6).Value = Application.Average(.Cells(myCount, 2), .Cells(myCount, 3))
End With
